      I recommend the channel - "Yuri Gagarin - Russian war diggers". The guys are engaged in military excavations, identifying soldiers' medallions, and so on and so forth.

    Eternal memory to the hero, And 153 Seagull. The lakes of the Kola Peninsula, they still keep many secrets. Interestingly, the body of our pilot was reburied, 3 km from the exit into the depths perpendicular to Leningradka, along Planernaya street, a grave on a small island, a screw with the pilot's initials was dug in scrawled on it. It was a long time ago as a child.

    The search was carried out using a deep-sea vehicle.

    According to our classification, a deep-sea vehicle is 500 m to the bottom of the depression. All that is above are underwater vehicles.

    If the photo in the article is the pilot's pistol, then where did he shoot 2 stores? The shutter is in the rear position on the delay.

        It is possible that he himself lived in the Arctic, but did not think about the option with landing on ice. At the end of October, ice rises on many lakes, although if he sat down on the ice and fired back from the cockpit, why then did the Germans not take the plane and the pilot's body off the ice, if only for the sake of interest? When the plane was fired upon, the ice broke and the plane sank or cracked during landing, the plane hung on its wings in a hole, then drowned? Well, here we are such nasty people opera. We have the floor, and we have a bunch of questions for that word.

    As far as I remember, the I-153 M-62 would be correct. The brand of the fighter, then the brand of the engine. And the TT pistol with empty magazines, the bolt on hold - did the pilot shoot back to the last round?
    But, at least kick, but for me the news is good. Our other pilot returned home.
